Development work in Nepal
Nepal has the potential for higher, inclusive economic growth through the development of hydro-electric power and through sectors like agro-processing, light manufacturing and tourism, which present significant opportunities for UK business, and trade with India and China. This potential is hampered by complex investment rules and processes, costly and unreliable energy supply, poor transport infrastructure, political instability, weak institutions, poor governance and gender disparity.
